Sometimes I have to step back and remind myself that
a) not everyone reads all the crap I do
b) not everyone reads my dopey blog every day
and c) the site actually picks up new readers.
“News” broke today and I kind of ignored it all day, but enough people have sent it in that I figured I should post it.
Bobby Bonilla will be paid over one million dollars a year by the Mets from 2011-2035.
I guess that it financially made sense to defer it, but the future has arrived (it’s the gosh-darn 2010’s! Â Where’s my robot?) and soon Bobby Bo will be making a million bucks again.
The Wall Street Journal went into some detail of the financials, and CBS Sports also covered it today.
It might make sense but as I gray, a piece of me will die every time I buy a ticket or a hot dog and think that Bobby will get a piece.
Now I’m really looking forward to the 2036 season…which will include nice blue uniforms with 50th anniversary of ’86 patches and a reunion featuring 70 year old Doc Gooden. Â Unfortunately, the Mercury Mets will no longer be in Queens then.
